    I plan on doing so. I've only got two parts painted fully right now (one shoulder and the collar).

    Just uploaded my sig, that's my armor, with photoshoped color on helmet and some of the plates

    Good to have you here Corey. Any pics are nice for us to see. Don't hold back just because you only have a couple parts. Show them off.

    Alright, Here's a couple of pics, as of now. I plan on finishing the paint and later upgrading material. It's made of ABS, and I've done most of it myself (with some help from the Southern Outpost of course). Any advice or critizism would be appreciated, as I still have a lot to learn. ^_^

    This is the full suit (so far)


    This is a closer view of the chest armor...no I'm not multicolored just not done.


    This is the shoulder plate (it says Southern Outpost Mandalorians in Aurabesh at the top)


    This is the other finished (except for weathering) piece, the collar..


    This is my gun (if you don't know, it's from The Fifth Element ^_^, also unfinished)

    Also, this is my photoshoped(and I use that term lightly ) interpretation of what I should look like when it's all finished. (Btw, I didn't have my chest diamond done at that point, so I had to color one in ) Oh yeah, and I gotta get the knees ^_^



    I still gotta get my girth belt, and boots, (and eventually make a jet pack:jet pack), and gauntlets, but I'm getting there.

    I finished the paint and weathering on the: the left and right chest plates, shoulders and the chest diamond. I'll post pics when I get a chance. Thanks for all the positive feedback so far.
